I’m Jay Antani and CinemaWriter.com is my movie review site, started in 2009. CinemaWriter is all film reviews all the time. This is where you go if you want my latest reviews. You’ll also find links to my reviews written for other outlets.
A bit about me: I’ve been an L.A.-based film critic and feature writer since 2002 when I began writing for the short-lived, little-known but very plucky Los Angeles Alternative newsweekly. A year or so later, I also started writing for Slant, Filmcritic, and, later, for Boxoffice Magazine, Paste Magazine and many a now-defunct repository of cinematic wisdom, including the pioneering world-cinema social media and streaming service Jaman.com, Moving Pictures Magazine and Filmcritic.com.
The majority of my film coverage has been in the areas of independent, international, classic and non-mainstream cinema because that’s where I think the most rewarding discoveries are to be made. Still, I love all kinds of movies–from classic and current Hollywood and World Cinema to documentaries and experimentals.
